?question?

How hard would it be to install a 4-link suspension, with a shortened 9 inch?

Would an older donor car be of some use, I already have a 9 inch?

I just don't think the IRS will ever hold up to my expectations.

And I don't want to dump a lot of money and time into my IRS, when I would rather do it to a live axle setup.

I'm sure it wouldn't be easy but definately worth the work. I'd like to see pics if you get it done.

how fast do you want to go? There are a few guys running 11's with IRS, and a few guys knocking on the door for 10's with IRS.
